A DVD rental firm that has a few branches in Barnsley has entered into administration today - though customers have been told gift vouchers will still be honoured.

Blockbuster - which was over 500 stores across the UK - will continue to trade as administrators try to find a buyer.

The administrator's announced today that gift cards and credit acquired through Blockbuster’s trade-in scheme will be honoured towards the purchase of goods.

The news comes just a day after it was announced that HMV has entered administration - but will not be honouring gift cards.
